What is a good Hatchery for a beginer? I want somethin I can put at least 12-18 eggs in but something that is fairly cheap. I dont mind turning the eggs myself. I have seen at the fair a simple glass "box" such as an aquarium with only a heat lamp over the top of it. Is it possible to have the eggs in something like this the whole time or are they just bringing eggs that are ready to hatch in the next few days or that day in the display? Usually if you walk by a couple times you will see a chick breaking the shell. So my thought was there just pickin eggs that are about ready for this dispaly?
